As a mainstay in the Mammut line for ten years, the Galaxy 10mm Climbing Rope has become a favourite all-around rope of climbers everywhere. It's just the right size to decrease weight without loosing the durability that you need for everyday use. Mammut gave the Galaxy a middle mark for quick and easy rappels and ultrasonic-sealed rope ends to completely prevent sheath slippage. Strong enough to stand up to the abuse of sport climbing and light enough for long alpine routes, the Galaxy is a truly versatile rope.
Mammut Rope Finish - superDRY™: These proven classics of the Mammut range are impressive due to their balanced profile. High strength, minimal weight, comfortable handling, and a long life expectancy are perfectly combined. Thousands of satisfied users have trusted these solid all-rounders for years. This ropes of the superDRY™ line are therefore the best choice when just one rope is to be used for a number of different activities, especially when water may be involved.

This was the first rope I owned, bought as a 'do everything' rope. It is extremely durable, and thus ideal as a wall rope, or for sport climbing where repeated falls are expected. I used it for trad as well, but felt on occasion that it was a little too heavy. It is ideal for a beginner, as it is certainly not slick through a belay plate - some may see this as a disadvantage. Compared to my ice-lines, it was awkward to manage, but confidence inspiring.
The superdry treatment works as it should in winter, and is certainly worth paying for.
In all, a good choice as a first rope, or if you know your rope will see hard or frequent usage. Perhaps for those climbing at a high level, a lighter, slicker rope may be preferable.
